COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oude Kriek Boon is one of the finest examples of the 100% spontaneous fermentation fruit-Lambic style. 400 g of wild cherries per litre are fermented together with a blend of young and old Boon Lambic that has been aged in oak casks. After clarification, the Oude kriek is bottled and refermented. It is unsweetened, unfiltered, unpasteurised and has no artificial flavourings, preservatives or colourings added. Brewed in Lembeek, the village that gave Lambic its name. Pour slowly in a flute glass without disturbing the yeast sediment in the bottle. Cheers !

Bidd (10) - POLAND - NOV 19, 2016
Bottle 375 ml, 2015 year. Very light cherry aroma. Small foam, crimson color. In taste soft sour, nice cherry and pip. Overall nice, but a little disappointment.

Dahlstrom (345) - Nygatan 29, SWEDEN - NOV 13, 2016
375 ml bottle from Systembolaget (2 year old bottle). Opague dark red with a medium pink head. Sour aroma with cherries and lots of funk. Taste reflects the aroma. Low body, with a dry texture.

highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - NOV 10, 2016
2004 bottle that has survived two house moves and a change of wife, but alas not well. The pour raises a few concerns: barely any head. Thin corona of bubbles and minimal evidence of life lower down. Pinky bronze colour. Complex, cidery aroma - fermented apples, turpentine, faint cherry, acetone. Has suffered badly in the rack. Dies on the tongue. Close to flat. Fruits have faded badly, too. Big disappointment. Really needs some fizz to pep it up. Wheres my whisk? Puckering sourness is very much still there and now dominates. Supposed to be good through to 2023, so I guess its a transport and/or storage issue. Either that or I just dont get this particular lambic. Have slowly raised my scoring as the bottle emptied, so its a grower.

manomarnypopis (57) - POLAND - OCT 17, 2016
Aroma: Dry aroma of dominating cherry, subtle horse blanket, nothing too complex. Appearance: Dark red coloured body, pink frothy head. Taste: Mostly cherries and raspberry, very sweet for typical kriek, but just fine, medium bitter. Overall: Really drinkable beer, perfect for Oude Kriek beginners.

Fules (903) - Gyngys, HUNGARY - OCT 6, 2016
(2014-es vjrat) Kzepes, rzsaszn, szellős, nem tl hossz hab, stt bord szn. Illata vadlesztős, meggyes. Vad savanyval indt (nan, 40% meggy!), majd fokozatosan előbukkan a lambic animlis, vadlesztős zvilga, ami egybknt nem tl markns. Lecsengse kzepesen hossz, s rdekes mdon inkbb a lambic viszi a prmet, a meggy csak fanyarsgot ad. Kzepesen testes, erősen sznsavas, keserűje csak meggytől szrmazik. Kicsit sok a savany, de egybkn nagyon finom.

AwaKe (258) - Laval, CANADA - OCT 3, 2016
En bouteille, cuvée 2015 bu en octobre 2016. Couleur rouge vin opaque, fine mousse rose. Arômes de cerises sauvages assez fraiche et de barriques. En bouche beaucoup de bois de cerisier, barrique. L'acidité sur les joues révèle quant à eux les cerises. Le côté boisé décele aussi une certaine amertume un peu désagréable, qui rappel un jus d'orange après s'être brossé les dents. Certainement une bière pour les grandes occasions. À partager ou à boire en format 375ml. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
